Walking onto the green fields of the Tiger Classic golf tournament, the boys golf varsity team hope to do well and exceed last year’s tournament, which they placed fifth in. The tournament took place on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.

There were a total of 15 teams that competed in the tournament, and with teams such as Highland Park, Southlake and Pleasant Grove, a wide variety of scores was expected.

Even though though the conditions for the tournament were perfect, the golf team struggled in scoring in the tournament.

Senior Quentin Green scored a 78-78, but it wasn’t enough to raise the team’s overall place in the tournament. Along with senior Zayne Madden’s individual score of 74-79.

“Overall I think I did pretty well,” Madden said. “The second day I didn’t do so well on my putting, and that’s what I really want to work on.”

Highland Park finished in first place with Southlake coming in second.

The Tigers finished in 12th place with a score of 329-666.

“We really need to practice more,” Green said. “Putting and chipping is what we really need to focus on since it is what we had the most trouble with. And like every coach says, we just have to practice more.”
